MN Wild Remembers St. Augusta Teen Killed in Crash
ST. PAUL (WJON News) -- A St. Augusta teen who was killed in a crash Saturday night was remembered by the Minnesota Wild.
The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to a crash in the 21000 block of 23rd Avenue in St. Augusta around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
Authorities say a passing motorist called in and reported an overturned SUV. When deputies arrived, they found the driver, 17-year-old Charlie Boike, trapped inside the vehicle. They removed him and started life-saving measures, but he died at the scene.
The sheriff's office says the SUV left the road, entered the ditch and rolled. Authorities say slippery road conditions likely played a role in the incident. Boike was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Boike was a junior at Tech High School and played on the St. Cloud Crush hockey team. The St. Cloud Youth Hockey Association posted a tribute on Facebook following his passing.
A gofundme page has also been set up to help his family cover expenses.
